Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Wadena

Good cellular reception

Sprint has great network coverage here in Wadena. In fact, before we lost net neutrality, I could stream any video I wanted just over cellular, including all my Netflix. But apparently, I can’t stream Netflix anymore. Sprint is still a good company though. I think that’s mostly a Netflix move because I can still watch the CW app and other video streaming on my phone.
